This student has gone beyond just the regular learning and shadowing during her internship for the Dental Assisting Program. Montoya has been recognized by the dentist himself and his wife for the outstanding examples of her “caring” and “responsibility” pillars with her patient care.
The Dental Office was down one assistant and she noticed what was needed for the office. There was a elderly man that was extremely upset due to not being able to have all his teeth pulled because he has A-Fib. There also was a 9 year special needs child that needed a polish. Her passion to help made her jump in without taking a lunch or thinking twice, this made an amazing experience for both patients. She took on a full mouth series with the elderly man and polish the special needs child and keep the child calm during the process. Montoya also helped assisted Dentist with several other things and was said to have done an excellent job for her first time.
